My Own Random Music Challenge

So I was going through the CD collection at my branch, Flemingdon Park, and I thought that I ought to give some of these albums a try.  So I flicked through the jewel cases and picked out five random CDs.

Wooden Arms
Zipper Squirrel Nuts
Dream Theater

I've never heard anything by these groups/artists before, and I must say that I was really pleased with the result.  So I thought that I would challenge you all to try out my own little challenge.

Go to a local branch, and check out 1-5 random CDs and give them a go. 
But how would one go about selecting these CDs?

Here are some ideas:
You can choose them on the awesomeness of the band name:
You can choose a CD based on the album cover
You can choose a CD because a particular song title is epic
Or because you asked some random stranger to pick a number between 1 and 100, and flick through the cds until reached that number.

But Why Would anyone to this?
The music located in the branches is, in my own opinion, one of Toronto Public Library's best collections. I've done this challenge with myself multiple times a year, and I've discovered some great music. I hope that you guys who decide to do this challenge will find some gems as well.

If you like the CD enough, please list them below as I am always looking for new bands/music to check out.
